Naatu Naatu (RRR), nominated for Best Original Song

The 95th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, Los Angeles. “Everything Everywhere Everything At Once,” a twist-filled sci-fi film, earns 11 nominations. “All Quiet on the Western Front,” a World War I epic, and “The Banshees of Inisherin,” the story of a friendship set against the backdrop of the Irish Civil War, both collected nine nominations.

Among the best picture Oscar nominees are the two biggest films of the year, Avatar: The Way of the Water and Top Gun: Maverick. Also nominated are “Elvis,” a biopic about Elvis Presley that captivated audiences last summer in the United States, the semi-autobiographical film “The Fabelmans” by Steven Spielberg, “Tár,” a drama about a violent kitchen orchestra, “Women Talking ,” a look at the residents of a repressive religious community, and “Triangle of Sadness,” a parody that takes place partly on a mega-yacht.

Note that the song Naatu Naatu, from the Indian film RRR, which has already won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song, is also on the list of nominees in the Best Original Song category of the Academy Awards. This year the ceremony will be presented by Jimmy Kimmel, who will succeed Chris Rock. The latter had been the victim of a slap by Will Smith in 2022.
